What is the policy on dealing with wrong data in external files (modules):

- Should the program be written such the way to not crash if a module is wrong 
or modules should be considered as a part of program and so be relied upon 
that these are correct?

- What to do if the information in a module is inconsistent? Should the error 
be reported, ignored or what?
